Senator Boxer: Welcoming Military Families to Our National Parks
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
For the first time, military families can now obtain a free annual pass to visit more than 2,000 national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests, and other public lands around the nation. To learn more, please click here.
Active duty service members and their dependents can pick up their free “America the Beautiful” military pass at any national park, wildlife refuge, or other public land that charges an entrance fee. A list of participating sites is available here.
Our nation can never repay the debt we owe to our men and women in uniform, who sacrifice so much to defend our freedom. But we can take advantage of opportunities like this one to show our immense gratitude. As co-chair of the Senate Military Families Caucus, I hope that military families will accept this small token of our appreciation and enjoy the priceless natural beauty to be found across America.
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
